Cox Communications

Cox Communications and the James M. Cox Foundation have been philanthropic partners of Boys & Girls Clubs of America and local Clubs since 1977.

Cox generously provides contributions to BGCA to fund technology centers and technology integration services in key Cox markets. 

Monetary contributions to BGCA have exceeded $1.2 million, while total Movement-wide cash and in-kind Internet, cable and advertising support is valued at more than $11 million. Support from Cox is bridging the digital divide and helping to close the technological achievement gap for many disadvantaged youth by providing access to the same technology opportunities afforded many of their peers. Cox has celebrated a Cox Connect Day of Volunteerism in local Clubs; and its local affiliates have established significant advances in both technology and awareness-building for many Clubs across the nation.

In its 2012 Philanthropy 400 report, The Chronicle of Philanthropy placed Boys & Girls Clubs of America in the No. 1 position among youth organizations for the 19th consecutive year.
